    Hack What You Drink

I pondered for quite some time as to how to introduce this week’s cocktail.  How do you present a convincing argument that a combination of chocolate and gin is going to be a good thing?  It’s not a combo most of us would think to try.  Then I remembered the incredible Twentieth Century Cocktail.  At the time it seemed a very bizarre combination.  I mean, really, would you think to combine gin, chocolate and lemon juice?  I certainly wouldn’t.  But the resulting drink is amazing.

With that in mind, I have to think that the Alexander will also be deliciously interesting.  Give me about a week and I’ll let you know!
